‘Concrete And Gold’ is the Foo' Fighters ninth studio album and was
written and performed by Foo Fighters, produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo
Fighters, and mixed by Darrell Thorp.
“I wanted it to be the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make
a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin's sense of melody and
arrangement… Motorhead's version of Sgt. Pepper… or something like that.”
So speaks Dave Grohl of the mission statement made manifest in Foo Fighters'
ninth epic, the aptly-titled ‘Concrete and Gold.’
Just as Foo Fighters' anthem of the summer “Run” “opens as a dreamy,
slow burner then… quickly turns heavy as thunder” (Billboard) with its
“huge triumphant chorus” (Stereogum), ‘Concrete and Gold’ marries some
of the most insanely heavy FF riffs ever with lush harmonic complexities
